What makes a confident woman? - A confident woman is sure in her ability to learn and grow. Asking for help (from a colleague or google) comes easy because she knows that no one has all the answers.
Who are your role models for confident women? - Jane Goodall: At 26, in 1960 Jane Goodall stepped into the Tanzanian rainforest with a few supplies on her back to pursue her passion. It didn’t matter that no one - let alone a young woman - had studied chimps in the wild, she was going to do it! Maxine Waters: Maxine Waters is full of conviction and you hear it every time she speaks. In moments when other politicians would keep their heads down, she speaks up with vigor and strength.
What are you the most proud of in your life? - I’m proud that I take chances - stepping into the unknown has given me some of the most amazing experiences and allowed me to create something of my own. With each chance come new challenges, new lessons, new failures and new successes.
